Remember the Content Prediction part of Chromecast Fast Play, announced in late 2015? We were then told it was scheduled for early 2016, but I realized it still hasn't rolled out and reached out to Google to find out why.

Apparently, Google and Netflix are still working on it.
Remember Chromecast's "Fast Play" feature? Well, some of it is out there in the wild now: for example, apps now can be pre-fetched by the Chromecast when t... by David Ruddock in Chromecast, News

I've learnt that most things Google announces are far from finished. Just consider Allo.

Pretty crazy.
 
Not much point in updating this chart anymore. Mobile wins.

I can't believe it's been 10 years already since my year-long internship at Intel as we worked on this very same chip. Time sure does fly, though so much really did change since then. 

Really glad my Intel experience was limited to that year though, it's not a company where you grow and learn internally as a developer much. I've met many people there who have been there for 20+ years and as developers didn't even know what a function was. True story.

+Jonathan Berry​ I was code reviewing this guy's code, and I was like... Why is he copy pasting the same code blocks over and over? So I went over to his cube (at Intel, everyone has a cube, even the CEO, at least in Folsom) and asked him why he didn't just use a function. He just stared at me with a confused look and asked me what I meant. He was probably over twice my age and rode a big loud bike to work and during his free time.

+Gabriele Lucci that was it! Thanks! I'm using Lux Lite Dash to control the screen brightness (Nexus 5x built in auto brightness is erratic). Temporarily turned off Lux and it installed. Thanks again!

Slightly annoyed how channels aren't synced here and youtube. New follows on youtube don't follow on gaming, and new follows on gaming don't follow on youtube. Probably intentional but slightly annoying.

The fact that this was possible is scary.

So my Pixel C's mic is no longer working in any app, whether I try Skype, Google search, or keyboard dictation - nothing.

I tried rebooting, even into safe mode, and still nothing. Turned off dev options - no effect.

The crazy thing is it was just working the other day.

What could it be besides a hardware issue? I'm on M stable MXC89K. I really hate doing hard resets, and I've only had this tablet for a few weeks following the replacement saga for endless reboots that affected my first unit.
